I have always been a fan of the small independently owned coffee shop's that normally get forgotten in favour of the big brand name's which is why I have been a regular customer at The Rochester Coffee shop. I was disappointed to see that they now only offer pre - packaged sandwiches and Panini's instead of the freshly made while... More

We decided to drop in for a drink and snack late morning. The coffee shop was busy but we were able to find a nice table towards the back. I had a very acceptable double expresso with a biscotti whereas my companions had tea and hot chocolate (the latter of which was pronounced excellent). They each had a slice of... More

My husband and I often visit this place as we live in Rochester. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is nice. The coffee is always good and the cakes and sandwiches are well presented and tasty.They offer a nice range of cakes and sandwiches for afternoon tea as well. Worth a visit.

I've been here multiple times, but I decided to eat here for the first time during Sweeps Festival. I was once again delighted by the welcome and service but there were a few problems which I am going to say only for the benefit so they can improve and work of these problems. The first issue was dirty plates, cups... More

This was my second visit & I loved it. We chose paninis from a good selection on the menu & settled back in the cosy chairs to enjoy a relaxed lunch with excellent service. We came home feeling we'd had a nice little treat. Thank you for your cheerfulness.

Everything about this place was good - it's set in a beautiful building which has been decorated to a high standard. The staff were attentive and efficient and the coffee was great - couldn't ask for anything more.
